Vancouver-based retailer Wear Else is stepping up their sartorial game this season with a new lineup of brands. Not only do they have exclusive rights to Raoul and Nationality, they'll be carrying See by Chloe and DVF shoes this fall. Additionally, fall marks the welcome return of pieces from well-loved labels such as Alice + Olivia, M Missoni, and RED Valentino.
With such an amazing selection of brands, you can imagine how excited I was when they sent me an impressive fall/winter 2012 lookbook and expressed an interest in collaborating. Based on the lookbook's outerwear selection (blazers, leather jackets, winter coats!), I decided it might be fun to pull a couple pieces of my choice for outfit photos. This was my first time doing a pull; admittedly, it was a little nerve-wracking walking out of the store and assuming responsibility for $1700 worth of outerwear. In fact, the shoot almost didn't happen because I didn't want the pieces to get rained on! Thankfully the weather cleared up just long enough last Sunday for some photos on the rooftop patio after brunch.
And speaking of amazing, isn't this Luisa Cerano vest something else? So soft and luxe, a versatile topper that can go just as well with a casual outfit like mine or a little cocktail dress for evening. Plus, it adds a bit of warmth, texture, and visual interest to whatever you're wearing
I have another look featuring a different piece of outerwear from Wear Else to show you later. In the meantime, have a great weekend!
